Yummy Appetizers

less than 10 minute walk from La Concha Resort. Good red sangria. Me and my cousin had apps only for dinner: shrimp in garlic sauce, skirt steak with a ginger soy sauce and the beef empanadas. All were very yummy and affordable.

While we were in Puerto Rico, we wanted to eat at as many regional restaurants as possible. We stayed at the Condado Hilton Plaza and wanted something within walking distance. My hubby found this place on Yelp, and we are so glad he did! We weren't super hungry that evening, so we ordered the sampler appetizer and churrasco appetizer, along... More

Picked this place after viewing their menu on the window. Great balance of local and general menu items. Loved the house wine and décor. Tried shrimp mofongo for the first time; didn't care for the mashed plantains, but the shrimp was superb. Overall a great experience!

We had our first dinner at Ropa Vieja and it was the restaurant to beat for our entire trip. Great food, wonderful service, and impromtu live entertainment made dinner special. The shrimp and rissoto was some of the best I've ever had!

I fell in love with Mofongo during our visit to San Juan but the Mofongo at Ropa Vieja has my vote as one of the best I tried while I was there. I forgot the name of the version I had but it was shredded skirt steak simmered in a red sauce with spices. It resembled pulled pork but it... More

Order the ropa vieja mofongo. It was delicious. We also had the churassco but nowhere near as good or juicy as the ropa vieja.

Food was pretty good but being only one of two couples in the entire restaurant, you would think they customer service would have been spot on. Drinks went unfilled, food took longer than expected and the waiter made us feel like we were bothering him for asking for a to go box and the check.

How long does it take a get a check? How long does it take to correct a check? Apparently this was a foreign subject and tainted my entire meal. I had the lobster, it was okay - not the tenderest, but decent; I had a rice I have never heard of because they were out of cassava that had been... More

Our first night in Puerto Rico and I wanted some mofongo. This place was recommended by the concierge so we had to try it. The rope vieja mofongo was amazing. I had never had mofongo before...but I am glad I have now. It has to be one of my favorite dishes, especially with rope vieja in it. There was chicken... More
